    Did this last year and it was fun to see some of the replies. So how are you faring in terms of preparation and being ready for the big night, whether it be a yard haunt, walk through, or even a party.

    Hello, foolish mortals! Last year I decided to recreate one of my favorite shows at the Disneyland Resort, Halloween Screams, and thought that you all might want to see it (better late then never, right?). I plan to finish an axeworthy ghost type setup of the Zero dog from Nightmare Before...

    decided that this year our yard cemetery would be attended by a somewhat over the top undertaker,, the ball in the walking stick glows with the help of a color-changing LED,, the hat creature will get LED eyes and it has a friend that will be coming over the shoulder of the long frock coat that...

    I’ve been reading the forums for the past year for inspiration for our front yard. I figured it was time to sign up and join the conversations.

    We have a huge yard and tons of decorations. Any tips or ideas for organizing them or organizing the plugs? Any tips at all are appreciated.

    I can't believe it's been 2015 since I posted a album to share with my fellow Yard Haunters. Anyway, here is the 2017 setup. I think the lighting effects that year were the best I've ever done. Enjoy!!!! https://www.halloweenforum.com/members/scary-firefighter-albums-halloween-2017-a.html

    Hello Everybody!!!! So excited to be back and for Fall (finally, it's been hot in Oklahoma) and the best holiday ever. This year I'm already busy building a new gallows prop (last one rotted) and since I have the lumber, a new guillotine will be started soon. But I do have need for some ideas...

    I live in MN where school doesn't start until after Labor Day. That means stores just put out Halloween stuff last week. I feel like the amount of Halloween decorations (specifically for outdoors) has been on the decline the last couple years. My city doesn't not have a Spirit Halloween this...

    I want to do a "open air" Hollusion, meaning just out in the yard. I assume I need to two stakes that I'll paint matte black and then attach the Hollusion matierial to the stacks. On AtmosFX website they say a little bit of ambient light BEHIND the Hollusion screen makes it look better. But...

    I like to decorate my front yard so that adults and older kids are entertained, but little kids aren't traumatized. Last year I had a bazillion pumpkins everywhere, as well as two suburban skeleton guys in lawn chairs with a fire pit. It was a surprisingly big hit, with people posing for...

    Week before last someone running from the police drove though our yard and plowed down our mailbox. This is what happens when we have to spend time and money on non-Halloween stuff during Halloween prep season. :) Anyone else with a little bit of Halloween outside year-round?

    Im new here and I have been doing haunted houses for 7 years now. What started as a one car garage haunt turned into a full front yard haunt with a lot of the neighbors helping out. Looking for new ideas as well as old ideas to help improve the haunt for this year
